Shaping Intimacy - A weekend for Couples
Sally Forster and John Witt
Many believe intimacy is a given, and should just happen naturally, like in the movies. Intimacy is not a fixed thing that you are born with and you either have or you don’t. Intimacy is learned and shaped through family bonds, peer relationships and life experience in general. Therefore how we have learned to be intimate is very individual and personal to each of us. The feeling of intimacy is an outcome of how we relate to one-another.
In this weekend workshop we will bring our knowledge of relationship development to teach and coach each couple in intimate relationship skills that will add depth, dimension and greater intimacy, both in relationship to yourself and to your partner.
The weekend is an opportunity to step out of your daily lives and nourish your self and your relationship in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
Cost £250 per person
My fees are negotiated according to ability to pay. As a guide, in London my standard fees are based on £70 for a 50 minute session.
Our reactions to events and people are formed from a complex interaction of actions, thoughts, feelings, beliefs and bodily responses. Most of what we do, we do out of habit, without noticing how we are doing it. Understanding where our behaviour comes from is only half the battle, noticing how we do it, in detail, is the key to transformation. If your goal is to manage yourself better and to live a more satisfying life then exploring the detail of how you live your life now will give you new tools in order to choose how you live your life in the future.
Each partner in a relationship brings their own preferred way of relating, their own preferred way of managing crises, their own background issues and blind spots. Add two or three ingredients from each partner and the resulting cocktail can be exciting, demanding, exhausting or just plain hard work. Getting the best out of relationships requires skills that many of us have never learned. How to be clear about what we would like, how to negotiate, how to express anger and disappointment constructively. These skills can be learned and practiced.
Whether you work together, parent together, live together or just need to explore your relationship, couples counselling can provide a space for you each to hear the other and be heard, a space where actions and reactions can be slowed down and explored, a space where each partner can learn new ways of managing their own issues and responses leading to clearer and more satisfying communication.
